Masseur massaging satr areas

Q: I am a male masseur and I have a massage parlour which is for males only. Sometimes, my clients want me to massage an area that is regarded as satr e.g. thighs, buttocks, etc. Is it permissible for me to massage these areas?

A: Ensure that the satr is covered with a thick cloth.

And Allah Ta'ala (الله تعالى) knows best.
